The nation’s top team also has the nation’s toughest place to play in according to 247Sports.
Clemson’s Death Valley tops the list, followed by Georgia, LSU, Penn State and Texas A&M.
“Dabo Swinney's Tigers are 34-1 at home over the past five seasons, tied for the best record nationally with Alabama,” 247Sports analyzed. “But you've never heard Swinney complaining about Clemson's student section, even in lopsided games. Just as dominant nationally as the Crimson Tide during this stretch of unprecedented success for the program, the Tigers have turned the other Death Valley into a house of horrors for nationally-ranked competition.”
Clemson’s 2019 home slate is led by likely top-15-opponent Texas A&M coming to town in week two. The Tigers open Memorial Stadium on Aug. 29 versus Georgia Tech to debut the ACC Network.
Clemson won by an average of 32 points per game at home last season.
